Is it better practice to have 1 model for each table or 1 model for each controller? I believe following strict mvc it should be 1 model per table, but 1 model per controller makes more sense since many model methods will use multiple tables.

This is not much mvc related realy.

At the moment, i prefer thinking about those model as object.

Many many way to handle that.

good luck !

I generally try to use 1 model per table, but some believe you should use many models...

Your models should be a representation of a real thing (hence the name Model), if your model requires information from many sources to represent your `Thing`, make it so.
